Re: Manjaro Linux with Optimus Graphics.

Be interesting if this translates to AMD ATI stuff - either of these two companies dont like giving out code to their switchable gfx stuff, even though its past 10yrs on some pcs.

Manjaro Linux with Optimus Graphics.

Hi folks. I just wanted to let you know that i've switched from Arch to Manjaro (Manjaro i3 community) on my main T540p and there's a specific package for dual GPU architecture in Manjaro Linux (called video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-bumblebee) and it works perfect. (To have the dGPU dynamically switch of...

Re: New ThinkPad series : A series (A285 and A485)

Not to rain on the parade or anything, but aren't AMD laptops kinda run hot ("AMD turned my laptop into a toaster" is the common refrain)?

You guys are bringing some good points to check prior to purchase.

Unless there's anything else that would fit really. 1600*900? Hell i'd even go with non-HD if i could i mean i hate 1366*768 with a passion.

Re: Is the x120e considered a "real" ThinkPad? and the laptop is slow, how to speed up?

This is fairly close to my experience too. I bought mine new in 2011. A couple of years ago, something went wrong with Windows Update on Windows 7, and the laptop ran one core full out all the time, with the attendant heating. But a netinstall of Debian with LXDE has made it a very usable laptop ag...

Re: Is the x120e considered a "real" ThinkPad? and the laptop is slow, how to speed up?

I got one last week and tuned in up a little bit. I traded the HDD for an SSD (cheap samsung 750 evo you can get for 20$ on eBay) and installed Arch Linux. Any apps that would run on Windows on that laptop will run much better in wine on Linux. Plus the whole experience feels fairly fast for a lapto...

The title says it all. All i really want is that it works and has ANSI layout keyboard (US Layout is best).

I am willing to pay extra for any accessories you have with the laptop too.

Either reply here or send me a private message. We'll arrange the deal.

Re: 4k T570 screen in T540p

Those are totally different animals... The T540p was available with a 3K screen that needed 4 eDP lanes. So in theory, it should be possible to drive a 4K screen with the 3K cable.

T440s panel in T440?

Hi folks.

I was wondering if a FHD screen designed for the T440s model would fit a T440.

Because the FRU screens for T440 are garbage. It would be a shame to swap garbage for garbage.

What do you say?

Re: T540p power supply question.

Hi all.

To answer my own question (after i tested it)

The T540p refuses to charge if you plug in a 45W power supply.

It will charge with a 65W nonetheless.

Possible that it would refuse to charge with a 47W chip on a 65W power supply.

The more you know!

Re: T540p power supply question.

If you want to check power, you can use a kill a watt. Check the power consumption on the 65 watt and 90 watt adapters. If 65 reads 65+, the laltop draws 65+ watts. The 90 watt adapter should be 10% higher than the actual laptop because of the internal circuitries. Thanks. I'll try to acquire one o...
